D800 = the d2x I always wanted...
May 15, 2012
...aah, got a d800e
And it makes me remember the d2x days on this forum. Loved my d2x in good light, but I was an active poster, lobbying hard for FF and better ISO. Canon's 5D and 1D2 were kicking Nikon's ass.
The came the D3. Got one. Yee hah! FF and super ISO. Nice job Nikon!
But gone was the super pixel density of the d2x ....(which was about a 27mp FF equiv)
Gone was the killer Reach of magnification.
Gone was the incredible cropability when things went right.
D3X came, pure righteousness...best damn cam made until now ....but not quite compelling largely due to price (for me)
So now enter the d800...FF, great ISO, and the return of Reach ! 12% better in fact !!
Yep, the d2x I was looking for.....
